Excellent pickup

Tornade MS Pickups Humbucker P.A.F '59s Published on 03/14/15 at 09:59
This PU was mounted in neck position on a Telecaster in Open G, blending perfectly with the Tornade MS Nocaster pickup. These Tornade MS pickups can be considered as small wonders if you look for a twangy Telie sound revitalized by the roundness of the Humbucker. Marc from Tornade MS made me the wiring like an old Telecaster, that mix as desired both pickups using for this the tone knob (i.e., the wiring adopted since 1972 by Keith Richards, among others). That's great, it’s possible to play the Telie on the bridge pickup by incorporating as desired the Humbucker (B/N = 60%/40%, 80%/20%, and so on). Forgotten the ‘57 Gibson PAF, which was originally installed on the guitar, and the...…

Forgotten the ‘57 Gibson PAF, which was originally installed on the guitar, and the Seymour ‘59 that had improved the sound a bit. Also forgotten the Don Mare Keefer in the bridge position, too powerful and without nuance. Now is the best of the best. Thank you so much Marc, the Telie rocks, it's nothing to say, it must be heard to be believed!

Wow, so this is what a LES PAUL sounds like???

Tornade MS Pickups Humbucker P.A.F '59s Published on 09/24/14 at 08:47
Winding, rewiring and installation by Marc of Tornade MS. What can I say?.... A 58 Les Paul VOS that finally sounds like it should...:)

In terms of use, I've had the opportunity to play in studio with it and you can really tell the change.

The sound is open, the low-mids, the highs, everything is well-defined. The difference is especially glaring when you play with the crunch of an amp, with a moderate attack for clean sounds and more attack to get a fat crunch that knocks you off your feet!

In short, I sold my BurstBuck 1 & 2 on AF and I don't regret having sold them to switch to these pickups!

Oh, and one last thing...you'll be able to hear all the wrong notes you play! Hahaha,...…

A specific character

Tornade MS Pickups Humbucker P.A.F '59s Published on 09/23/14 at 13:46
I'll be brief about this.
I was looking for some pickups for my semi-hollow Ibanez that would combine nicely with an Ampeg GVT 5 (with the volume all the way up) and a OXFUZZ II (germanium), respecting the nuances when playing with the guitar's volume...and what do you know, I found them!!!
In two words: A dirty and super precise sound.

I used to play humbuckers, but that was then!

Terrific

Tornade MS Pickups Humbucker P.A.F '59s Published on 09/20/14 at 02:16
I chose these paf 59 for my Les Paul classic because I had heard of the manufacturer. I originally had some wolftones marshallhead that didn't sound bad at all... but these really shocked me! The paf 59 have transformed by Les Paul from a pigeon into a jaguar. It now sounds perfect, very thin and very precise. It's very '70s, think Aerosmith, AC/DC, or Peter Frampton... In short, I love it and I certainly won't sell this black Les Paul any time soon!! I was dumbfounded by the sound finesse, even with clean sounds. It doesn't matter if it's the bridge, neck or mid position, it always sounds awesome, very well-balanced, it really blew me (and my neighbors) away! I give it a 9.5. A big...…

A big thank you to the artist, who, BTW, is very cool! Tornade ms really honors its name!! Get them! Don't think it twice, they will awaken your guitar!
